2017's Word

I keep coming back to the word ACCEPT.

Being a new mom is all about change and adapting to it. My days consist of providing these babies with the basic necessities - warmth, food, love. Priorities have shifted drastically and it's no longer about what I need. If I can find time to nap - great! Shower? Even better. An exercise class? Ok, let's not get too crazy.

I'm learning to accept these changes and be ok with what productivity looks like now. I still have to-do lists, but I'd like to try setting expectations (and accept!) that those tasks might not get done right away. This mindset is and will be very, very hard for my Type A personality. I like to get things done. And fast.

I love these girls with all my heart and want to be as present as I can when I'm with them. I think focusing on accepting this new normal will help with that.

Hope your new year is off to a great start!
